Long Forgotten Gems That Brightly Shine
"Dr. Hudson's Secret Journal" Intelligent, articulate, professionally acted melodramas from a time when there still existed those who knew how to craft an engaging story. A draught of refreshment in these New Dark Ages of empty conceit and artless drek! Many thanks to the uploader of these long forgotten gems; I should have mentioned that at the outset.

To the previous reviewer... Correcting the grammar of a reviewer is NOT a valid review of the program, it's just rude and upsetting. Knock it off. The person who uploaded this program is a well-established contributor to this site and should be allowed an error here and there. We're only human. We make mistakes. Geez!
